Prompt for August 5 – Virtual Didier Dumas

A storm in a storm

Dramatically, you’d call this “escalation.” Hurricane Isaias—or any major storm system—might offer a profound example to inspire your work, whether you think on a grand scale (a hurricane during a pandemic) or a smaller scale (a tornado during a tropical storm). Step out of reality into fantasy (a zombie attack during a domestic dispute) or twist the image into one of joy (a surprise ice cream party hosted by your crush after you win a balloon race).

Use the prompt to inspire your work in any form (poetry or prose; fiction of any genre; creative nonfiction, essay, or memoir).

Join our virtual meeting at 8pm for readings and discussion.
